May - we have areas of agreement with Labour opposition on Brexit

British Prime Minister Theresa May, speaking ahead of talks with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to find a compromise on leaving the European Union, said on Wednesday (April 3) there were several areas of agreement between them.

"There are actually a number of areas we agree on in relation to Brexit ... what we want to do now is to find a way forward that can command the support of this House and deliver on Brexit," May told parliament.

She listed a desire to protect jobs, to leave the EU with a deal and to end free movement as some of the areas of agreement.

By approaching Corbyn, a veteran socialist deeply disliked by many Conservatives and mocked by May herself as unfit to govern, she risks enflaming Conservative divisions.

One minister for Wales, Nigel Adams, quit on Wednesday.

May commended him for his services to to government when he asked a question about his constituency during Prime Minister's Questions.
